The 2018 countdown: A tip a day about Google Cloud Platform


A few weeks ago, I've started a new blog dedicated to Google Cloud Platform, to share tips'n tricks I come across while exploring the platform, getting to know new products, or gathered through experience with a particular service I've been using:

With the holidays season, I went with a "2018 countdown

Gradle vs Maven and Gradle in Kotlin or Groovy


Once in a while, when talking about Gradle with developers, at conferences or within the Groovy community (but with the wider Java community as well), I hear questions about Gradle. In particular Gradle vs Maven, or whether developers adopt the Kotlin DSL for Gradle builds.

In the past, I blogged several times about using BigQuery and the Github dataset to analyze open source projects hosted on Github, by running some SQL queries against that dataset. You might want to have a look at this past article on some Gradle analysis with BigQuery. Considering those questions popped up recently, I decided to do a quick run through those questions with some simple queries.

Gradle vs Maven?
The JDK built-in web server with Apache Groovy


In my timeline, I saw a tweet from Joe Walnes about the built-in HTTP server available in the JDK since Java 6. It's super convenient, starts super fast, easy to use, but I often forget about it. I'd probably not use it for serving planet-wide load, but it's very useful when you need to create a quick service, a little mock for testing some web or micro-service.

Here's a little hello world for the fun.

More voice control for Actions on Google


Today, there were some interesting announcements for Actions on Googlefor building your conversational interfaces for the Google AssistantAmong the great news, one item particularly caught my attention: the improved SSML support:

JavaOne — How Languages Influence Each Other: Reflections on 14 Years of Apache Groovy


Last week, I was in San Francisco for my tenth JavaOne! I had two sessions: one on the past / present / future of Java Platform-as-a-Service offerings, and one on programming language influences, and particularly how was Apache Groovy influenced, and how it also inspired other languages.

Here's the abstract:

DevFest Toulouse — Building your own chatbots with API.AI and Cloud Functions


A few weeks ago, my buddy Wassim and I had the chance to present again on the topic of chatbots, with API.AI and Cloud Functions, at the DevFest Toulouse conference.

Here's the latest update to our slide deck:
Cloud Functions et API.AI à Devoxx Belgique pour vos interfaces conversationnelles


Pour Devoxx France, j'avais développé l'embryon d'un petit chatbot pour découvrir l'agenda de la conférence. Mais c'était plus un "proof of concept" qu'un projet vraiment fini. Mais je vais pouvoir reprendre cette ébauche et l'étoffer bientôt, car j'aurai le plaisir d'approfondir le sujet pour Devoxx Belgique ! 

La vidéo (en Français) de la présentation que j'ai donnée à Devoxx France sur le sujet a été publié il y a quelque temps sur YouTube, et vous pourrez la voir ci-dessous :

Cloud Shell and its Orion-based text editor to develop in the cloud


After deploying in the cloud, there's a new trend towards programming in the cloud. Although I'm not sure we're quite there yet, there are a couple of handy tools I've been enjoying when working on the Google Cloud Platform

I had been using the built-in Cloud Shell console, on the Google Cloud console, to have a terminal already pre-configured for my Google Cloud project. It allows you to easily have access to your whole environment, run commands, etc, just like you would from your own computer. The fact that all the command-line tools you can imagine (gradle, maven, gcloud sdk, etc) are already there is helpful, as well as the fact that you are already configured for using other cloud services.

To launch the shell, look no further than the top right hand corner, and click on the little [>_] button. It will launch the terminal in the bottom part of...(image)

Apache Groovy and Google App Engine at JavaOne


I'll be back at JavaOne in San Francisco in October to speak about Apache Groovy and Google App Engine

Apache Groovy

I've been involved with the Apache Groovy project for 14 years now, it's a long time, and it's interesting to see how the language has evolved over time, how it was influenced by other languages, but also how it influenced those other languages itself! Let's see which operators or syntax constructs evolved and moved from...(image)

Scale an Open API based web API with Cloud Endpoints


InfoQ recently released a video from the APIDays conference that took place in Paris last year. I talked about scaling an Open API
